First the boards for the floor (douglas fir) were arranged to take advantage of the grain character from board to board.
|Floor boards arranged.|
The floors needed repeated "scraping" to ease the twisting of the floor boards.
|Keyed plinth for thumb cleat.|
|Radiused plinth with shoulders.|
|Oak thumb cleat engaged.|
The floors were removed and installed maybe 5-6 times before I was
satisfied with the way they sat.
I shaped some oak for the forward centercase support. This open design will allow for lashing items securely in the boat.
|Supports screwed in place.|
|Overall of floors and support.|
The rudder screws are now countersunk. I'm happy with the installation. More later-
